Course Description

The area of Special Educational Needs requires practitioners to be equipped with a secure knowledge and understanding of special and inclusive practice and to have due regard for the political, legislative and social inclusion agenda that is driving inclusion in the modern world. With this in mind the PG Cert in Special Educational Needs has been designed to help practitioners develop the skills to manage special and inclusive provision while reflecting on the philosophical and political tensions between practice and the wider political inclusion agenda. Our programme invites professionals from all fields of the education sector and beyond with the aim that they will learn from each other through shared experiences. The course consists of three modules: Teaching Young People with Special Educational Needs (core) designed to introduce participants to the key concepts of special and inclusive needs and to prepare them for study at Masters level. Participants then choose two modules from: Children with BESD: Prevention and Response: designed to raise awareness of the theories and practice upon which behavioural intervention is based. ADHD, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia: provides the participant with an overview of the three principal developmental disorders, how they are identified, assessed and managed. ASD in a Mainstream Context: provides the participant with knowledge and understanding of how to support and manage young people with this increasingly identified developmental disorder. Candidates who complete this programme successfully will gain enhanced knowledge and understanding of special and inclusive needs and ultimately it is hoped they will be able to contribute to organisational change and effectiveness.
